Number of seeds - Torrent sites vs μTorrent ?


Recommended Posts

Why is there such a large gap between what μTorrent software shows as number of seeds and what the torrent sites indicate is the number of seeds.

At the moment, μTorrent shows 14 seeds for a Star Trek Fan Films torrent, while the web sites show only 2 seeds:




Are μTorrent seeds "partial" seeds?

Additional seeds not known to trackers can come from DHT and Peer Exchange; the Tackers tab for your torrent(s) will show if that is the case.

So, does this mean that all the extra seeds (12 of 14) that are not shown by trackers were using magnet links instead of torrent files?
